Warm hugs across the miles.

Guess what gang?  It's Saturday again and time for a new project.  This is a card that I made using the Scrap Factory file called ScrappyDew Bedtime.  I used the hair Vicki and outfit #3.  All of the card is constructed using various scraps and 1 sheet of cinnamon colored felt from Hobby Lobby.

 The inside of the card uses Kitty Palz from Scrappydew.  

I have a very good friend that lives many miles away that is dealing with a medical issue at the moment.  I thought she might like a cute card to cheer her up.  I think I surprised her and she said that it did just that.  Get well soon sweetie!

Now to the comedy portion of the blog for this week.  I am a huge CHICKEN when it comes to thunder and lightning storms.  I am terrified.  Thankfully we just don't get many here in the valley of Oregon.  That was until last night.  I knew when I got up in the morning and saw those stinking clouds I was in trouble.  (at least the storm waited until after the ScrappyDew Hangout on Google+ was over) About 9:12 pm (yes, I looked at the clock) it started.  Just heat lightning at first and then the BOOMERS started about 45 minutes later.  Wasn't bad, I could handle this.  But when the power blinked and the house rattled I went into panic mode.  Where can I hide....can't get under the bed.  Plugging my ears just made my head and fingers hurt.  THEN I remember I saw in the garage a set of noise cancelling ear phones (like the ones you use on a firing range).  Slapped those puppies on and magically the boomers didn't seem so scary anymore.  Of course this is after 3 hours of trying to stay calm.  This danged storm lasted until just before 4 am.  Of course then my kitty Spooky decided it was time for her to eat and got me up at 6:30 am.  Gang, I was falling asleep in my lunch.  Took a 3 hour nap this afternoon and all is well at home again.  Still keeping an eye out on the NOAA radar for any threat coming at us for tonight but so far so good.

So what's happening in your neck of the woods?  Any cool tips to share?  Leave some love or a comment and I will quickly get right back to you!

Bright blessings, Jana


  1. This very good friend loved her card!! I was very surprised when the mailman brought my mail. :) It's awesome!

    The storms hit us yesterday, my cat was out in the sunroom and she started crying to come in. I knew something was up because she is a big scaredy cat! LOL When I let her in I could see the wind was picking up, I knew a storm was coming. I was on a Skype call with someone, when the height of the storm hit. I unplugged my computer and was just running it on battery. Wasn't taking a chance with my Mac LOL. Right in the middle of our conversation BAM a strike of lightning hit and we lost all power. No more internet, no more conversation.

    Head Dew-ette/Rockette :) LOL
